Film crews took to Framingham on Tuesday to shoot scenes for the upcoming Mark Wahlberg-produced movie Patriots Day, about the events surrounding the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings.

Filmmakers shot scenes of men dressed in police, SWAT, and FBI uniforms—including Wahlberg in his now-standard Boston Police Department uniform—knocking on doors.

Local Framingham families and former Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis were on hand to witness from afar the recreation of these scenes.

Tuesday afternoon’s filming took place on Harrison Street, although neighbors said scenes would extend to surrounding streets.

Two of these neighbors were Abby Lyons and Paul Foran, who said that members of the film crew had knocked on their door to inform them that they would be doing 24-hour shoots in the neighborhood from Tuesday through Thursday, including one scene featuring a recreation of the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Tuesday marks the three-year anniversary of Tsarnaev’s capture.

“They said that we may hear some gunfire but to not be concerned,” Lyons said.
